Tucson, AZ, May 05, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- In our competitive world, as higher education is becoming the expectation rather than the exception and high grade point averages are becoming increasingly important for determining job candidacy, the art of earning exceptional grades is becoming crucial for any student who wishes to excel in life. Pure intelligence is no longer enough to achieve success in school, but rather a complete spectrum of skills and abilities. Students who are struggling to achieve their academic goals now have a new resource to assist them along the way.
The recently published self-help guide entitled "Learning to Succeed and Succeeding to Learn: The Smart Way to Earn Better Grades in School," by Christopher K. James, contains tips that can help any student improve his or her performance in school and in life. Based upon years of trial and error, James divulges his successes and failures on the road to achieving his summa cum laude honor designation, the highest possible academic achievement, at graduation.
Since it is written by a peer and intended to be informative and motivational as well as entertaining, the guide appeals to college and high school students in a way that perhaps no other resource can, relating to both those students who like school and those who don't. James effectively stresses the importance of success in school and provides the tools to succeed for a wide range of students.
The guide includes topics such as motivation, procrastination, organization, writing skills, completeness, frame of mind, teachers, integrity, and many more. Even though it divulges many specific tips on how to succeed in each area, the primary focus is to learn for one's self how one learns best and apply those techniques to daily study habits.
This guide is now available in the Bowker's Books In Print catalog, as well as from major book retailers, including Amazon.com. ISBN: 978-0615192413
